CRA International's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 26x. In other words, CRA International shares trade at around 26x recent earnings.

CRA International's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 1.365. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.
The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into CRA International's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

There are currently 94,484 CRA International shares held short by investors – that's known as CRA International's "short interest". This figure is 8.8% up from 86,859 last month.
There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting CRA International shares can be evaluated.
CRA International's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of CRA International shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of CRA International shares traded daily (recently around 57965.644171779). CRA International's SIR currently stands at 1.63. In other words for every 100,000 CRA International shares traded daily on the market, roughly 1630 shares are currently held short.
However CRA International's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of CRA International shares, or, against the total number of tradable CRA International shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case CRA International's short interest could be expressed as 0.01% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 CRA International shares in existence, roughly 10 shares are currently held short) or 0.0145% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable CRA International shares, roughly 15 shares are currently held short).
Such a low SIR usually points to an optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against CRA International.

Dividend payout ratio: 29.25% of net profits
Recently CRA International has paid out, on average, around 29.25% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.33% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), CRA International shareholders could enjoy a 1.33% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In CRA International's case, that would currently equate to about $0.95 per share.
While CRA International's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that CRA International may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
CRA International's most recent dividend payout was on 25 March 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 14 March 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, CRA International's shares have ranged in value from as little as $33.5897 up to $80.84. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while CRA International's is 1.5731. This would suggest that CRA International's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
